My love of the written word and a curiosity about everything I encounter led me to a high school journalism class that changed my life. In college, I was editor of the campus newspaper and, years later, returned to newspaper work at a sister paper of the News Democrat. After becoming an empty-nester several years ago, I left the 9-5 work world for a new challenge: getting healthy and fit. Today I enjoy the best of all worlds -- wonderful health, plenty of new challenges, time with my husband and our two adult daughters, and the opportunity to continue doing the writing I so enjoy.

Belleville News-Democrat is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
